I buy them by the case, once a month and eat them after rinsing. Sometimes I remember to put tomatoes in with them.

Every month I buy a cluster of tomatoes just for eating. Right now I am cutting one up to add to my beets and other veggies with HV salad dressing. Chick peas and tomato. Hmmmm. Thanks. Found another way to use them. Chick peas go on next month's list.

Rinse the chickpeas, add in a can of diced tomatoes and chill. Lots of pepper! Yummy, it's hard for me to stop eating them.

I'll have to do without the pepper. It tears my innards apart. Specially fresh ground pepper. And I love pepper. For years before they were even popular, I always had a pepper mill in my kitchen. I found that the small ones worked best. I got a fresher grind than when the pepper seeds sat in a tall one.

I will be making a lot of hummus because my daughter and daughter in law are going to be wanting some, so I can easily use this size jar. The first time I made it I made it without the tahini and they all loved it, but I want it to be authentic. I noticed that tanini is very high fat, but It must be good fat because it only listed 3.5 gm of sat fat out of a total of 23 gm.

I never liked chick peas plain, but I sure do like hummus!
Actually, I never did ask Giant Eagle where it was.
I was standing in Wegmans last week waiting for something at the counter, turned, and there it was, right at the end of the aisle across from me

We don't have Wegmans, just Giant Eagle and Shop and Save. There's also Foodland but not in my area. I couldn't find it in Walmart but our Walmart is small.

The only time I had them plain was when I saw them on a salad bar. My 5 year old grandson loves them and just eats them up. Imagine that! We took him to the salad bar and he said he wants chicken peas. They didn't do anything for me. That was before I found out that that's what hummus is made from. I am trying to have beans in my diet in some form most days. What you hear is true, once your body gets used to having them, the issues become less and less, if you know what I mean.

Every time I take inventory on my basement shelves I think "no more chickpeas!" Then when canned legumes are on sale I forget and...bring home more chickpeas. I keep meaning to write down what else I need to make Balela salad so I buy the right ingredients to make it at home. OTOH, after looking at that recipe I might be golden! All I need are black beans and I usually have at least one can on hand. Had Trader Joe's Balela once and loved it, but not enough to spend over $3 for a half-pint container.

That salad looks yummy. I think I will have to give this a try.

A disclaimer here taxy: I've never made Balela, just eaten it. Some recipes call for mint too. Not a fan since I got sick on Creme de Menthe on our honeymoon, but the Trader Joe's pre-made doesn't have mint. I'm trying this recipe sometime Sunday or Monday, in case you want a review.
